Agnes,” a critically-acclaimed documentary film, will return to the F.M. Kirby Center on Friday, June 23. The special screening will take place on the 51st anniversary of the Agnes Flood of 1972 that devastated much of the Wyoming Valley. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. “Agnes” premiered at The Kirby last June 23 to a sold-out house and, due to popular demand, three additional screenings were added. The documentary includes rare photographs, local news footage, newspaper clippings, interviews with Agnes survivors, and, for the first time ever, archived national network footage. It was not shown on television. Hailed as “emotional,” “powerful” and “inspiring,” the film serves as a testament to the strength and fortitude of the people of the Wyoming Valley, who overcame what at the time was the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. Tickets, priced at $10, go on sale on Thursday, April 6th, and will only be available at The Kirby Box office or by calling (570) 826-1100. All proceeds benefit the Wilkes-Barre Preservation Society. DVDs will be available ONLY at the show.
